Pride: A deadly sin

Farinata is still proud

Look where it got him

NOTE: Farinata, a proud heretic, will spend eternity in a flaming tomb. Pride can be good; we ought to be proud of doing good work. Sinful pride is making yourself the center of the universe and putting yourself first instead of such things as God and morality.
